Five-Day Solar Electric Workshop

8 a.m.- 5 p.m.

With prices for photovoltaic (PV) systems falling and demand exploding, systems are suddenly economical for nearly every home or farm. If you have ever wanted to make your farm energy independent, take your homestead off the grid, or start your own business installing PV systems, now is a great time!

Join OEFFA and Annie and Jay Warmke of Blue Rock Station for a five-day training course where you will learn how to design and install photovoltaic systems. The course will be equally divided between lectures and hands-on labs. You will learn with a working PV system, dismantling and reinstalling it, troubleshooting, and test its proper operation. You will also learn how to integrate a working wind turbine into the PV system. At the end of the week, you will have the opportunity to sit for an internationally recognized certification Level 1 examination offered by the Electronic Technicians Association (ETA), which allows you to receive a respected industry credential demonstrating your knowledge.

Cost: $930 for OEFFA members, $970 for non-members. The cost includes ETA fees, an installation toolkit, and a course workbook. Lunch is provided on each class day. Contact OEFFA if you would like to discuss installment options. All attendees must be paid in full by the beginning of their first class.

Registration: Registration is limited to 10 students. Register online at www.oeffa.org by Wednesday, November 5.
